Year 6 

Welcome to the web page for the final year of primary education - Year 6! 

 

Here you will find our current class letter as well as helpful websites below for enhancing Year 6 learning!

I know this will be a unique and special year for Year 6 this year and I will do my best to make it the best year before the children leave Steeple Bumpstead for pastures new!

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch. 

Best wishes

Mrs Jo Hammond

Links to VERY useful things! (Also check out the Weblinks page for links to MORE awesome sites!) 

 

www.sumdog.co.uk FANTASTIC, fun website which each of our children have their own login for. Play against others, earn items for your SUMDOG house, compete in regional and national competitions; a whole variety of really fun games covering all areas of maths. SUMDOG adapts its questions to your child’s ability. If your child has forgotten / misplaced their SUMDOG login, please speak to me.

www.ttrockstars.com A ROCKIN’ way to practice your times tables and division facts. To make things easier, each child’s login for this site is exactly the same as their SUMDOG login. Children have their own avatar (complete with rock-name!), earn coins to get items for their character, and can practise their times tables in five main games:

  • Garage (for children to compete against themself; teachers may from time-to-time set the times tables they wish them to practice on here, otherwise ttrockstars begins to adapt its questions to present those being found more tricky, more frequently)
  • Studio (all times tables and measures children’s overall speed of recall; this is where they can improve their ‘rock-status’!)
  • Arena (children can play against their bandmates –classmates- however this could prove more difficult logistically when playing at home as they would need to join the same game as their buddy, at the same time -easier when sat next to each other! Again, times tables to focus on can be limited by the teacher, here)
  • Festival (children can play against other players from around the world, practicing all times table facts)
  • Soundcheck (designed to mimic the government's new Multiplication Tables Check for Year 4 pupils in 2020 where children have 25 questions and 6 seconds to answer each)

Children can see their stats in the form of leaderboards and heat-maps, flagging up the times table facts they are finding more tricky to remember in red, and those that they are confident with in green. The site will also work on an iPad!

http://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=HitTheButtonv11 an old favourite – hit the question or hit the answer

http://www.amathsdictionaryforkids.com/dictionary.html MATHS DICTIONARY - very child friendly site with explanations of loads of mathematical terms and vocabulary
